    tick, tick...BOOM!

    ★★★★

    A beautiful tribute to Jonathan Larson and artists working in diners all over the world who are desperately afraid they’re running out of time.

  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★★

    Afterlife’s highs can’t make up for its serious pacing issues and clunky final act, but it does enough to tie up some loose ends and usher in a new era of ghostbusting.

  • My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission

    My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission

    ★★★

    World Heroes Mission’s final act and animation make up for what is otherwise a story filled with wasted potential.

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★

    While it adds some cool context to the MCU, presents some interesting ideas, and has its fair share of exciting moments - Eternals can’t help but feel bloated, rushed, and leave you with the overall thought of “so it’s another filler movie.”

  • Last Night in Soho

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★½

    Stylish, creepy, and packed with an incredible soundtrack — Last Night may not be Edgar Wright’s masterpiece, but it is still consistently interesting and ambitious.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★★½

    While it might be difficult for those unfamiliar with the material to adjust to, Dune is masterfully crafted in every way to create the first part of a sci fi epic that was well worth the wait.

  • The Last Duel

    The Last Duel

    ★★★½

    Fantastic performances and striking commentary make up for The Last Duels long runtime and somewhat rushed final moments.

  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    ★★★½

    These last four definitely don’t have the same amount of love and care put in as the earlier films. They feel rushed and awkwardly paced, but it still hits some solid emotional beats and the charm of the characters and it’s pre established world works. It also might be knowing how much is cut from the book in this film that makes it feel rushed?

  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    ★★★★

    Back to the rewatch. This one was always one of my favorites as a kid even though it misses some of my favorite stuff from the book. Mainly the exclusion of the Sirius Harry bonding and the weird creatures in the maze.

    CGI melting gold on the goblet from 2005 looked the same as melting gold in the forge from Hobbit in 2013 uh oh. 

    Graveyard scene 10/10

  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die

    ★★★★

    No Time to Die sends Craig’s Bond off on a high note packed with some of the best action this era has seen and being one of, if not the most personal and emotional Bond films ever.

  • Spectre

    Spectre

    ★★★½

    Spectre’s biggest fault is that it’s just not as good as Skyfall. Mendes clearly wanted wanted to bring old school bond into the modern day and he does a pretty good job, but sometimes it’s a little too campy in contrast to the rest of the film. It’s not bad at all — I actually think it’s pretty fun, but it’s just thematically a little messy. If they had toned it back a little bit I think this would be more loved.

  • Midnight Mass

    Midnight Mass

    ★★★★½

    Mike Flanagan’s meditation on religion and death achieves what few have done before by perfectly balancing character, horror, and philosophy.
